“We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Rico as a valued advisor to our growing board. From the second I was introduced to Rico it became immediately clear that we are tightly aligned on our appreciation for the critical role the Blockchain & Tokenization ecosystem will continue to play in all aspects of our lives.
